At the WiSo, there is a special Nürnberg Orientation Course which is OBLIGATORY for our new foreign students in the week before the courses start, one in each term: in the beginning of October and mid-April. There you’ll get the additional information you need for your stay in Nürnberg. We will also visit local companies, libraries, the language lab etc. and have a lot of fun (welcome party, city-rally/ paper chase, etc.)
There’s also an independent buddy system with students from Nürnberg. They know your situation and will help you to get to know Nürnberg as well as other students. The International Relations Office takes care for that a friendly Nürnberg buddy will be waiting for you on your arrival or waits to get in contact with you by email.
Please make sure, that we have your current email-address to establish contact. Often Hotmail-accounts may cause some problems (spam filters), so we recommend other services as yahoo.de, web.de or gmx.de.
Please note: this introductory week is specially designed for all students coming to Nürnberg (WISO & EWF). For all other students, the central office of international affairs organizes a similar course and a buddy system in Erlangen and some parts are obligatory for both groups, but we will inform you about that.
